Using TERA funding, the County provides rental and utility assistance (along with other expenses related to housing as may be eligible) by means of an online application portal, and centralized call center.
Mobile County has also been awarded $1,754,165 in Community Development Block Grant – Coronavirus (CDBG-CV) funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). Using a portion of CDBG-CV funding, the County Grants Department has partnered with a local nonprofit (i.e., Legal Services of Alabama) to provide mortgage and utility assistance as well as other various aid and relief services for income-qualified, COVID-impacted households. Please note that the County will not provide direct assistance to individuals and/or families, rather funding will only be provided through County nonprofit partners.
